TITLE I PARENT INVOLVEMENT POLICY
In the fall, an annual meeting will be held to share with parents a description of the Title I program and its requirements. Marshall Elementary will provide a flexible number of meetings to allow for parent involvement. These meetings will be scheduled by the school in avariety of language groups. Topics covered during the meetings will include:
- Discussing current student assessment data and student progress.
- Providing information about school and district resources for student academic improvement.
- Conferring with teachers.
- Parents will have the opportunity to volunteer at Marshall and support the overall academic program.
- Parental input from the parent meetings and training sessions will be shared with the School Site Council (SSC) to provide an organized, ongoing, timely way of involving parents in the planning, review, and improvement of the program.
- Providing training programs to help parents support and work with their children at home and at school.
- The school communication is sent home informing parent/community of all meetings of interest. For special meetings, targeted language groups receive notice in their language. The school communicates about parent meetings and training sessions offered at Marshall Elementary, at the District Advisory Council’s Harold J.Ballard Parent Center, and throughout the district. Every attempt is made to communicate with parents in their primary language.
- During parent meetings, opportunities will be offered for the formulation of parental suggestions. Responses to their suggestions will be reviewed in a timely fashion, if possible, by the next scheduled meeting. Topics that are appropriate for SSC review/action will be placed on the agenda for the next regularly scheduled meeting by the school administration. Parents are notified annually of individual student assessment results by Assessment Services Department. An explanation of the information is available in several languages.
